Commonwealth Pipeline Defeated
April 2013 the Commonwealth Pipeline proposal was suspended with the following company announcement:
"The sponsors of Commonwealth Pipeline have suspended development of the project. We will be updating the website periodically to provide current information regarding the project's status. Thank you for your continued interest and patience."
The Commonwealth Pipeline was proposed by Inergy Midstream, L.P., UGI Energy Services, Inc. and Capitol Energy Ventures, a subsidiary of WGL Holdings, Inc.. The proposed fracked gas/natural gas pipeline would span approximately 120 miles in order to lay a 30-inch pipeline that would begin in Lycoming County, PA, and from there cut through Columbia, Montour, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Berks and Chester Counties, all in Pennsylvania. The Pipeline as proposed would transport an estimated 800,000 dekatherms per day of gas drilled and fracked from the Marcellus shale.
DRN worked closely with residents to challenge the project and were rewarded with its cancellation.
